*    Permanence of Storage

 

Some memories retain information for longer duration while others are used to store information for a very short period. There are memories which require constant refreshing to preserve the information; these memories are called dynamic memory, these memories are volatile in nature and lose contents on power failure. Another memory, which retains memory forever, is called static memory. This comes under the non-volatile category. As you have learned earlier, RAM is volatile memory and ROM is non-volatile memory
